Think of your domain name as your website phone number. But because numbers are hard for us to remember, we use clever words. There can be only ONE of each domain name on Earth, (yep. it’s the World Wide Web) so we need to register them with a Registrar. Choosing a domain name is really fun, because you can come up with some pretty snappy phrases. Make it memorable. Of course, if you can register the domain name that IS ALSO your company name, then that’s best.
Notes: Dot com is always the best, because most website users expect .com to be the extension. But there are many other extensions. . . .edu, .org, .net, etc.
Other really important note: Don’t despair if you think of a better domain name later. You can point MANY domains to one site. Got that? If three years down the road, you think, “Aw, shucks. Why didn’t I think of ThisCleverDomainName.com?” you can register it at ANY TIME and have it point to your website. How to do this? This is one of those questions you can Ask Me on any page of this site.
